In just a few weeks, we go to the polls once again

0:00:020:00:03

to elect a new UK government.

0:00:030:00:06

The stakes at this election really could not be higher.

0:00:060:00:09

Our country is deeply divided

0:00:100:00:13

and more than ever,

0:00:130:00:14

we need a government to bring us together,

0:00:140:00:17

not one that is trying to drive us further apart.

0:00:170:00:20

Right across Scotland, you have the opportunity to tell Nicola Sturgeon

0:00:210:00:26

that we do not want another divisive independence referendum.

0:00:260:00:31

The best way to do this is by electing a Labour MP,

0:00:310:00:35

who will always put jobs and local services first,

0:00:350:00:39

and a Labour government that will be for the many, not the few.

0:00:390:00:43

Labour's always been rooted in progress,

0:00:450:00:47

compassion and fairness,

0:00:470:00:49

which is why, when Labour is in government,

0:00:490:00:51

we achieve remarkable things.

0:00:510:00:53

The minimum wage,

0:00:530:00:55

rights for workers,

0:00:550:00:57

investment in our NHS,

0:00:570:00:59

120,000 children lifted out of poverty in Scotland,

0:00:590:01:03

tax credits,

0:01:030:01:04

winter fuel allowance,

0:01:040:01:06

civil partnerships,

0:01:060:01:07

the Scottish Parliament.

0:01:070:01:09

The Tories only offer us a hard Brexit that is a threat to jobs,

0:01:090:01:14

tax breaks for the privileged few

0:01:140:01:16

and an economy that relies on low-paid and zero-hours jobs,

0:01:160:01:20

while the richest get richer.

0:01:200:01:23

Their recklessness is tearing the fabric of this great country apart.

0:01:230:01:28

Over the past seven years,

0:01:280:01:29

the Tories have put their own interests first

0:01:290:01:32

and the SNP always puts

0:01:320:01:34

a second divisive independence referendum first.

0:01:340:01:37

Neither party is interested in the fact

0:01:370:01:39

that living standards have declined

0:01:390:01:41

and too many people are in low-paid, insecure jobs.

0:01:410:01:44

A Labour government will make different, fairer

0:01:440:01:47

and better choices.

0:01:470:01:49

A Labour government will introduce a real living wage of £10 an hour.

0:01:490:01:54

We'll protect pensioners

0:01:540:01:56

by guaranteeing the triple lock until 2025

0:01:560:02:00

and we'll ban zero-hour contracts

0:02:000:02:02

to give workers the right to a fair day's pay.

0:02:020:02:05

The Labour movement, led by Jeremy Corbyn and Kezia Dugdale,

0:02:050:02:08

will always believe in progress, compassion and fairness.

0:02:080:02:12

That's why Scotland needs a Labour government

0:02:120:02:15

that puts our principles into practice,

0:02:150:02:17

in the place where Labour should be, in power,

0:02:170:02:21

working in the interests of working people.

0:02:210:02:23

The election will decide what the future will be.

0:02:250:02:28

For a compassionate country, for the many, not the few,

0:02:280:02:32

vote Labour on the 8th of June.
